The service was poor, the waitress was condescending and then completely disappeared after our food came, we never got one of the items we ordered, took forever to get the bill. Probably won’t eat in the dining room again, I’ve had way better service sitting at the bar.

Amazing food and service was fantastic. We have all our special occasion and fancy dinners here. The only downside is the food is so good we always leave over stuffed.
We love the ambience and we'll be back as usual sometime soon.

Took my mom and friend to dinner. Our waitress was great. Can’t remember her name but she had white spiky hair. She was great. You can tell she knows her menu! It was a little noisy but the food was so good.

This was our first time at Stark's. We couldn't have been happier. Beautiful ambiance, service was excellent, and the food spectacular. We started with the prawn cocktail, very fresh with large prawns and excellent sauces. My dining companion had a 16-oz ribeye and he loved it. I had the BBQ prawns which were perfection - very light and perfectly balanced sauce. Our sides were onion rings and asparagus- both superb. Deserts were the flourless chocolate cake with caramel mouse (it really doesn't get any better) and the bread pudding (also delicious). I really wouldn't have changed a thing - what a spectacular dinner!

After seven years of memories and wonderful experiences at Starks, celebrations of countless birthdays, anniversaries, and cancer remission, we will never return. Wishing you all well. We miss what Starks used to be like. Wait staff and bartenders are amazing. Godspeed!

Great steaks, although cooked a little on the rare side even when medium rare. The bread swimming in garlicky butter is addicting. $20 corkage fee. Attentive service, romantic date night spot.

The steaks we had were just ok. The ribeye really shine as it was prepared well and was very juicy. The filet mignon was really lacking though. The first time around it came more rare than medium rare and we had to send it back. It didn’t really have much flavor to it either way. We also had some of the roasted bone marrow appetizers which were pretty decent. Overall I’d say it’s worth visiting once and done.

Delicious meal. My husband & I started with the calamari it was perfect. We then had a wedge salad , the best.. For our entree we split the New York which was done perfectly. We enjoyed two sides the cauliflower and mashed potatoes.. Wonderful meal.

Went out for Easter dinner, we originally had a table for six but it was changed to seven. Table was a little cramped but it worked out. Food was excellent, me and my wife shared the porterhouse for two...I wish I had it all to myself but that would have been greedy. We also had the potato fondue which was good, the calamari was very good. We sat outside and they did turn on the heater for my mother who was feeling chilly. Overall, an excellent dining experience and I would come back again.

We have eaten at Starks numerous time, before and after COVID and must admit was a bit disappointed this Saturday. Ordered the Prime Rib eye, medium rate and my son the choice Rib eye, medium well. First they got the two steaks mixed up, ok we switched with each other, but i got the choice, which was pretty grisly and average. Ordered a glass of red wine which arrived halfway through. My wife ordered the onion soup, which never arrived. The server was apolegitic and offer to bring it, however dinner was done. I will give them some slack as So.Co. had just opened up for inside dining, however we were sitted outside (which was quite nice) and did not have the same issues. Overall a good but not a great dining experience. I will go back again, as many great experiences, just not this one.

Loved bar area liquor bottles display. Very "old school" ambience.
Filet mignon medium rare was fab. Best quality meat wonderfully prepared and served.
Will return. Reservations required.

Food great as usual. Sat outside so ambiance wasn't the best especially with the table next to us with 2 unruly children that they allowed to run around the restaurant. Not Starks fault. Will definitely go again hopefully inside next time.
